Территория выставки около 15 тыс.кв.м. Песочный город создается каждый год на разную тему. В 2014 году- это музыка и музыкальные идолы.Лучшее время для посещения- вечер, когда включают подсветку.

Sugiro que optem por chegar um pouco antes do pôr do sol e poderão apreciar dois espetáculos num. A exposição ganha nova vida com os jogos de luz, cores e sombras que se revelam com o cair da noite.
